Creamer

– Posted in: Cream & Sugars

The Fostoria American Creamer (AKA Cream) is the largest of the three tabletop creamers.  Unlike the Individual and Tea Creamers, the regular Creamer was not sold in a set.  It does have a companion piece; however, in the Sugar & Cover.  The two separate items complement each other nicely.  This Creamer is the perfect size […] Read more

Table Salt

– Posted in: Salt Servers

The Fostoria American Table Salt is a rare item, indeed.  It was only produced circa 1925; therefore, the quanitity thereof is extremely limited.  If you find one, expect to pay handsomely for it. Most of the time the price is upwards of $1000 from private sellers, and as much as $2000 from online retailers. The price will vary […] Read more

Individual Salt

– Posted in: Salt Servers

The Fostoria American Individual Salt dish is a sweet little piece.  After retrieving the seasoning from a master salt dish (a much larger receptacle), the dinner host would typically fill these Individual Salt dishes and place them at each place setting.  These small glass vessels are sometimes referred to as a salt dip, open salt or salt dish. The Individual Salts are the smallest salt […] Read more

Shaker, “W” Top

– Posted in: Salt Servers

The Fostoria American Shaker, “W” Top (glass disc with a heavy nickle band) is a special find.  This particular type of Shaker is not common.  I rarely see them online, or at estate auctions and antique stores.  They are some of the oldest pieces you will ever find in the American pattern and were a pioneering piece in the Fostoria […] Read more

Shaker, H.N.T.

– Posted in: Salt Servers

These straight-sided Shakers, H.N.T. (with Heavy Nickel Tops), are a true favorite of mine.  I particularly like their hefty size, grand appearance, and vintage vibe. When filled with salt or pepper, these sturdy Shakers are not easily prone to tipping over.  Fostoria American Shakers, with the Heavy Nickel Tops, have a height of approximately 3 inches. This particular style […] Read more

Individual Shaker, Silver Top “C”

These little Individual Shakers, with their Silver Tops, are just precious. They look gorgeous sitting on the table, and even prettier when resting on the Individual Shaker Tray.  The Individual Shakers, with the Silver Tops, have a height ranging from approximately 2½” – 2⅞”.  Some of the old Fostoria Glass Catalogs list the height at 2⅞”; however, my own […] Read more

Individual Shaker, Glass Top

There were several different types of Salt and Pepper Shakers made in the Fostoria American line.  Not only were the designs different, but the tops and sizes were as well.  The piece you see here is the “Individual Shaker, Square”.  It is one of the smaller Shakers, with a Fostoria Glass Top (F.G.T.)  The Individual Shaker is between 1⅞” – 2″ […] Read more
